About 3 months ago I was driving and the motor shut off going down the highway. The car restarted after a few min. It started doing this 2-3 time a week to 2-3 times a day. Also sometimes I would turn the key and nothing try it several times and then it would work. I have noticed while driving it wont shut off but all the gauges go to zero including the speedometer, Its like I shut off the key. Now it wont start at all. I have replaced the battery, ignition switch and have moved some off the relays around under the hood. It has a sentry alarm thing so it takes a special key which I have not changed. Any suggestions would be great. I would also like to know how to bypass/ test the sentry system.

Honestly, I feel the problem lies in the aftermarket alarm. It can shut the vehicle down. As far as the sentury system, you need to contact someone that sells that system.
